A mother broke down as she appeared via video link in court alongside the man charged with murdering her baby.

Chelsea Crilly, 19, sobbed as she asked Jamie Chadwick, 21, ‘did you hurt her or not?’.

Orianna Crilly-Cifrova, aged just one, was found injured at a home on Cross Lane in Radcliffe, Greater Manchester, shortly after 2.25pm last Wednesday.

She was taken to hospital and treated by specialist doctors but despite their best efforts, the baby girl sadly died.

Crilly, is charged with causing or allowing her death. Chadwick – who is not believed to be the baby’s father – is charged with her murder.

There were emotional scenes when both defendants appeared at Manchester Crown Court via video link from prison yesterday.

Before the preliminary hearing began, after she became aware Chadwick could hear her over the link, Crilly shouted: ‘Why is Orianna not here with me?’

She then sobbed as she asked him: ‘Did you hurt her or not?’

Chadwick looked visibly distressed and cried with his head in his hands, the Manchester Evening News reports.

Both defendants spoke to confirm their names as Judge David Stockdale QC entered the room to start the hearing.

Prosecutor Andrew Mackintosh said there was no application for either of them to be arraigned.

He also said that the case was ‘likely’ to be heard in front of a High Court judge.

As trial dates were set between the barristers, Chadwick repeatedly shouted: ‘Chels, are you alright?’

He said ‘I love you’ over the video link as Crilly continued to sob, her face out of view of the video link camera.

The court clerk had to ask both defendants to remain silent during the hearing.

Mr Mackintosh told the judge that a number of experts would be instructed to write reports before the trial.

These include a bone expert, a radiologist, an expert who could comment on eye injuries, and an expert who could comment on injuries to the skull.

Paul Becker, defending Chadwick, told the court how the case would ‘obviously be very serious and complicated’.

No pleas were entered during the hearing and both Chadwick and Crilly have been remanded in custody.

The pair will next appear at Manchester Crown Court on 7 February next year.

Following her death, Orianna’s family said in a statement: ‘As a family we have been asked to say a few words about our beautiful Orianna, but even a thousand words could not begin to describe how much she was loved and how much joy she brought to our lives.

‘Orianna was just 12 months old, learning to walk and talk and starting to develop her own little personality.

‘She had the cheekiest smile with the biggest brown eyes, a combination that melted out hearts and wrapped us around her little finger.

‘Orianna was a daughter, granddaughter and great-granddaughter, and the void she leaves can never be filled.

‘She was our gift and cruelly taken from us and we are unsure how we can live without her.’
